About This Styled Session

“Pierina (we call her P) and her husband, Nick, modeled for this styled shoot because they didn’t love how their original wedding photos turned out. They brought their dog and got ready together, did a first look, wrote and said their vows, had a reception picnic and a first dance around the campfire.

Just a note that this location is not secluded, there are other properties and houses close by. However, you are within walking distance of restaurants and stores so that is extremely nice.” [Tessa, the photographer]

Top Tips For Eloping in the Area

“Plan to stay in the area for more than just a few nights because there is so much. You are only 20 min from Asheville where there is a ton of hiking, restaurants and things to do. It would be the perfect way to celebrate your wedding day for more than just 1 day. Also, give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the day without feeling rushed, I think a lot of people assume that you don’t need that much time for something like this but you don’t want to try and cram this whole experience into just a few hours because I promise, it will feel rushed.

There are no permits required at the rental property. However, if you do plan to venture to the Blue Ridge Parkway that is close by then you WILL need a permit for that. As far as LNT, always stay on trails and plan ahead.” [Tessa, the photographer]

Memorable Moments We Are Loving

From the photographer:

“My favorite moments from this day were the getting ready moments. They both took their time getting ready and took turns playing with their dog, Miso, while Noah Kahan was playing on a speaker the whole time. It was the most chill and fun time of the whole day.”

Details We are Loving

“The florals and Luxury Picnic! Everything about the bouquet, boutonniere, ceremony florals & tablescape were incredible. I feel like it truly elevated this simple rental property elopement into a whole experience.” [Tessa, the photographer]

Advice When Planning at a Rental Property

“My biggest advice for couples planning an elopement at a rental property is to be in really good communication with the hosts or owners because everyone has different rules on what they will allow. For example, a lot of Airbnb hosts will not allow guests because those additional people are not actually staying at the rental and therefore are not covered if something were to happen. Reach out to the hosts of the property before you book to verify what their rules are and if your elopement would be allowed.” [Tessa, the photographer]
